Brighter Future Funds

A Brighter Future Fund allows you, your family and friends to raise money together in memory of someone special.

It’s a lasting and meaningful tribute that will help create a brighter future for children and families at Great Ormond Street Hospital.

What is it and how does it work?

A Brighter Future Fund is one central fund in memory of someone special - built by you, your family and your friends. Working together, you can create a lasting tribute in your loved one's memory while helping sick children at Great Ormond Street Hospital.

At a time of loss many people want to do something to help. Friends and family may do a sponsored run, hold a bake sale, climb Mount Kilimanjaro, or choose to make a regular gift to mark a special date. However people choose to help, all the funds raised go into your loved one’s fund. We've got plenty of inspirational fundraising ideas, and you'll also get support and advice from us every step of the way.
